Orpic’s Mina Al Fahal Refinery to commence start up activities

Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company’s (Orpic) Mina Al Fahal Refinery has commenced its startup operations on November 9, 2017 after a major turnaround, maintenance and project activities.

The major turnaround started from October 3 for a period of 45 days and is planned to complete including start-up on November 16, 2017.

While Orpic’s key mission is to ensure that its operations run safely and reliably at all time, an increased level of flaring and noise can be expected during start-up activities for a couple of days.

While minimising the impact on the surrounding local community, Orpic relies on the community’s support and understanding during this period of start-up.
